Lions notes: Recapping Week 2 of OTAs

New, comments

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from the second week of OTAs.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
  • The Detroit Lions wrapped up their second week of OTAs on Thursday. Next week, the Lions will practice from Monday to Thursday for their final four days of OTAs. Then, from June 16-18, they will wrap up their offseason training program with a mandatory minicamp.

  • According to The Detroit News, Laken Tomlinson was the Lions' first-team left guard on Thursday. Manny Ramirez, who was in that role last week, moved over to center with the No. 1 offense.

  • Also from The Detroit News is this tidbit: Josh Wilson got the No. 1 reps at nickelback, and the recently signed Chris Owens stepped in for Darius Slay at cornerback.

  • Speaking of Slay, this is one strange injury situation: Jim Caldwell declined to provide further details, so what specifically resulted in Slay's "self-inflicted" bruised hands is a mystery for now.

  • It seems that Kellen Moore is making a serious case for the Lions' backup quarterback job.

  • This is probably a pretty good indication of what the Lions' current depth chart looks like at wide receiver behind Calvin Johnson:
  • Here's your weekly Eric Ebron drops update:
  • I can't imagine this was a very fun experience based on how the Tigers have been playing lately.
  • NASCAR driver, Michigan native and Lions fan Brad Keselowski attended Thursday's practice.
  • For more on Thursday's OTA, check out MLiveESPN and The Detroit News.

  • Ziggy Ansah wants to be "the greatest" at the defensive end position.

  • Xavier Proctor spoke to the Lions' official site about moving from defensive tackle to offensive tackle.

  • Former Lions wide receiver Kris Durham has joined the Oakland Raiders.
